Why was my post deleted?
 
I created a new thread "Titled Shame on RIM." Thier was no foul language and nothing personal. I stated my thoughts on BB after being a user of BB for years. I am assuming it was deleted because the post was not positive against BB. What a sham, what are we in Germany in 1939. We cant express our thoughts without you guys deleting them?

Privately owned and run forum.
Mods (I am NOT one) have the priviledge to move or delete threads.

Privately owned.

I don't recall the thread, and don't know anything about it.

Yes. George Washington and whomever formulated the Bill of Rights, did not consider privately owned websites. However, the users are given a lot of latitude.

I dont know why it was deleted and maybe a mod will respond. Did you use profanity?

wayneholbrook 01-09-2010 08:30 PM

No profanity at all...

Ok maybe I was a little harsh with the 1939 Germany statement, but come on, just because I wrote some of my thoughts of BB and were not all postive, the mods delete my post. No profanity at all. Give me a break, what kind of forum is this if we can not post our thoughts respectfully?....Because it was not all positive about RIM. Come on, are you serious Mods????

NJBlackBerry 01-09-2010 09:26 PM

Generally when mods are compared to Nazis, it reduces the chance of the thread ever being found.

All you have to do is PM a mod and ask. And suggesting Nazis is generally discouraged.

Noodle22 01-09-2010 09:35 PM

I read the thread, I complained in a post on it cus it was a big block of words with no paragraphs. But that's because it was hard to read and quite long.

I had basically said if you were not happy with Blackberry, then it is not the device for you, to each their own.

I don't know what happened to it after I got to it.

I moved it to Rants and Raves because that is what it was and that is the appropriate section to make that sort of comment. Did you look at the redirect?

And I do not appreciate being called a Nazi, especially since I gave 23 + years of my life making sure you have the opportunity to say what you please.

NJBlackBerry 01-09-2010 10:54 PM

I guess y'all haven't set up the "Unreadable Thread" Forum.
Definitely a candidate for it.

juwaack68 01-09-2010 11:04 PM

Um yea....

A word of advice, wayne, please use the enter key to create paragraphs. Having your post in one incredibly long paragraph is extremely difficult to read - and I didn't bother with it as soon as I saw the absense of formatting/paragraphs.

akosnitzky 01-09-2010 11:24 PM

I am glad we got to see the post. I see you do not accept PMs. I probably could PIN you. I joined the site around the same time as you. I honestly could not follow your post to give feedback. Its unfortunate because my sense is that you probably have valid comments to contribute.

JSanders 01-09-2010 11:30 PM

Only one line stood out to me.

No one called YOU a nazi, and i am still serving 19 years and going....

And I quote "What a sham, what are we in Germany in 1939. We cant express our thoughts without you guys deleting them?"

Sure sounds that way to me.

I took offense at it and still do.

dc/dc 01-10-2010 08:57 AM

I take offense too. I'm leaving for Afghanistan next week to ensure you keep your rights to an incorrect opinion.

LunkHead 01-10-2010 09:03 AM

Ya the comment was a tad over the top....

And even moreso if you consider the millions of people that were slaughtered.......

Jadey 01-10-2010 09:33 AM

Well here's another MOD just here to say:

if nothing else, check your user history for moved threads before you call out the mods. That applies to all users.

We don't need attitude from users just because we try and keep the forums tidy and organised.

This is a friendly site, pls check before you complain.

Have a lovely weekend all. This thread is now closed.

<3

Jadey 01-10-2010 09:39 AM

P.S. Yes, this thread has been moved to rants and raves too.
